One Of The Greatest Sequels Ever Made,
13 January 2013 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Back To The Fture Part Two is a brilliant movie with a great,extremely well thought out story,amazing characters and a solid cast,this sequels stays true to its characters and wont disappoint fans of the original.The story is more difficult to understand compared to the first,but as long as your paying attention all the way through,you will understand it perfectly.Michael J. Fox and Christopher Llyod are back and as good as ever as Marty McFly and Doctor Emmet Brown,and if you enjoyed them in the first one,you'll love them in this.Fans of the first Back to the Future shouldn't be disappointed.

After Marty McFly and Doc Brown visit 2015,Marty must re-visit 1955 to prevent many changes in 1985,but he must avoid himself from his previous visit.
